A Delhi University student was arrested for allegedly injecting a solution on a few underprivileged children, who took tuition from him, to “boost their memory” in east Delhi’s Mandawali, the police said on Sunday.
The accused, a second-year BA student, Sandeep, is a resident of Mandawali, they said.
The police said the students, who took injections from him, are fine.
During probe, Sandeep said he got the idea from a YouTube video, which showed that the injection would help boost students’ memory.
The matter came to light on Saturday when the police received a call from a person informing them about the incident.
On reaching the spot, police questioned Sandeep and during enquiry, it emerged that he gives free tuitions to students of Class VI-IX.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (East) Deepak Yadav said an FIR has been registered under Section 336 (Act endangering life or personal safety of others) of the Indian Penal Code.
